Somedays I’m torn whether to Twitter or not? Mr. McCain, what should I do? I mean should I let everyone know what I’m doing as often as possible or should I continue using Facebook for that sort of thing?
Mr. Obama, there are days when I write posts and I leave them in a “draft” status. Those unpublished posts are incomplete and could be potentially hurtful. What would you do? Would you “publish” these posts to share with others? Putting ones raw thoughts online can be a scary proposition.
I’ve been told it’s not wise to use my daughter’s real name on my blog. Mr. McCain, what would you recommend? Do you think it’s a bad idea? Sometimes I will use her fake name of Baby Singe, but it doesn’t take much effort to track down her real name. What say you my friend?
Is it wise to put so much of my personal life online? Mr. Obama, as a candidate for the highest office in the land, do you support bloggers openly sharing about themselves? What are your thoughts about anonymous bloggers? Yah or nah?
Memes, take them or leave them? John, would you ever do a meme? If so, would you tag anyone? Personally I’m not a fan of memes, but to each their own. They do shed light on bloggers we might not otherwise see. If you do memes, which are you favorites? The alphabet, numbers, music, or geography ones?
Final question to you Mr. Obama. Where do you see blogs going in the next few years? They seem rather abundant. They celebrated much hype a couple years ago. Now it seems everyone and their brother has one, yet personal blogs aren’t as active. There are fewer guys blogging now than say two years ago. The current administration will have you believe it’s because men aren’t feelers, I beg to differ. Do you think there’s value in promoting blogs? Will you bailout blogs if they collapse?
I’d like to thank both of you for your time. As bloggers, we have concerns and questions on our minds. We’re important people and god damnit, people like us. Well, we may never “meet” the people who claim to love us, but you get the picture. Now, I’m off to read some blogs when I should be working. Yippee!
